Ramsey was outrighted to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday. Ramsey is expected to stick in the Dodgers organization as Triple-A depth after going unclaimed off waivers. The 26-year-old is slashing .222/.285/.429 across 126 at-bats with Oklahoma City.
Ramsey was acquired by the Dodgers on Sunday in exchange for cash considerations. Ramsey will start out at Triple-A Oklahoma City, but could see the big league club sooner than later given the injury situation in the Los Angeles outfield. Carl Crawford is already on the disabled list with a back injury, and Scott Van Slyke was held out of Sunday's lineup with a back ailment of his own. If Trayce Thompson is unable to take advantage of this new opportunity and Van Slyke faces a multi-game absence, Ramsey could be one of the next men up.
Ramsey was designated for assignment Monday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. This move was made following the addition of Joba Chamberlain. Ramsey hit .243/.327/.382 with 12 home runs and 42 RBI in Triple-A last season and will continue to develop in the minor leagues.
Ramsey was optioned to Triple-A on Friday. Ramsey was a candidate to sneak onto the Opening Day roster out of camp, but he'll return to Triple-A, where he spent all of the 2015 campaign, with the hope of earning a call up at some point later in the year.
Ramsey was added to the 40-man roster Friday. Ramsey spent the entire season with Triple-A Columbus, but suffered a bit of a step back after a few successful season at lower levels of the minors. He could earn his first promotion to the big leagues in 2016 though if the team finds themselves in need of outfield depth.
